If you prefer a crunchier cookie, you should like these. I like my cookies to be a bit softer, so if I make these again, I will take the suggestion below and add a bit more butter to the recipe. Being able to change the color of the M&M for the occasion was fun. Thanks for posting the recipe!

These were OK cookies for us. They turned out a little dry and I only baked them for 10 minutes. The directions are not like I'm used to when it comes to a chocolate chip-type cookie. So I creamed the butter with the sugar and then added the egg and vanilla. I then added the flour, baking soda and baking powder and lastly the M&Ms. I got 24 cookies from this recipe. I chose to use the pink M&Ms in honor of it being Breast Cancer Awareness month. I think this recipe could use a little more butter or an extra eggs. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2008.
